Tips to Bug Proof Your HVAC Unit

July 21, 2017 | Blog

Tips to Bug Proof Your HVAC UnitIt’s a safe bet to say that no homeowner enjoys seeing insects or arachnids inside their house. Not only do many of these critters spread germs and disease, the smallest ones can get into your HVAC unit and clog it up. That’s why it’s important to bug proof your home. To help you out, we’ve compiled a few quick tips to do exactly that:

Tip #1: Seal Doors and Windows

More often than not, bugs slip in through small cracks around your home. Many of these areas can be found around the edges of your doors and windows. It’s a good idea to check each one and seal any problem areas you find.

Tip #2: Seal Your Foundation

In addition to checking around your doors and windows, it’s important to take a look at the foundation of your home for any cracks. Rotting wood and broken bricks provide a perfect opportunity for tiny pests to sneak in and start spreading germs.

Tip #3: Seal Your HVAC Unit

Are you seeing a trend here? The simple truth is that bugs most often get into our homes through cracks and gaps. If you have a window HVAC unit installed, you’ll often have insects and arachnids getting inside. This can clog up your system and lower its efficiency. To fix this problem, simply seal any gaps between the wall and the unit itself. Need assistance? Call on the help of a professional HVAC technician.

Tip #4: Clean Up Your Yard

Bugs love nothing more than the piles of debris in your yard. They gather there in droves. Some of them – like mosquitoes – are attracted to standing water. In other words, when your yard is unkempt, it increases the chance for small creatures to find their way into your home. You can fix this problem by cleaning on a regular basis.
